Naked body scanners justified by false narrative

Reading stuff like this really gets me going:
The Transportation Security Administration has opened an investigation targeting John Tyner, the Oceanside man who left Lindbergh Field under duress on Saturday morning after refusing to undertake a full body scan. 
Tyner recorded the half-hour long encounter on his cell phone and later posted it to his personal blog, along with an extensive account of the incident.  The blog went viral, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers and thousands of comments.  
Tyner is now subject to an $11,000 fine and civil suit.  Apparently, Tyner was not aware that he is a slave that is to keep his mouth shut while being sexually assaulted and having his naked body scanned.  That is what we do here in America these days.  Silly him.

His first hand account of this ridiculous spectacle is here, and is well worth a read.  Other commentators have some enlightening perspectives about the incident as well.

                       

Tyner's ordeal is just the latest tyrannical episode played out in the former Republic of the United States.  Folks, these machines are absolutely ridiculous, and do nothing to for the "security" of the public.  In fact, these machines are extremely dangerous and harmful, both to those being scanned and the TSA workers operating them.  The American public may finally be fed up with this degrading treatment.  Let's hope so.

Let's also not forget the false narrative used to justify these naked body scanners that is being shoved down our throats by the media and political class.  I've been hearing Jannet Napolitano and the gatekeepers at CNN all day talk about how these naked body scanners are necessary for "national security" and that they are required because of the Christmas day underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallah.  However, when you consider the real story of what happened on that Detroit-bound flight, you can smell the bullshit a mile away.  Just listen to what Kurt Haskell, a passenger on the same flight as Abdulmutallah, has to say about how this "terrorist" was escorted on the plane without a passport by, what appears to be, a government agent.  This was not only allowed to happen, but was set up from the beginning for a particular reason.

After all, there is a lot of money to be made off the national security state, so why not just stage events to scare the public into accepting more assaults on basic human dignity, while at the same time making a bundle of cash off of it?  Michael Chertoff is a perfect illustration of this.  Here's a man who ran around advocating for these naked body scanners, while his own company profited off of them.  Of course, we're supposed to be good slaves and not bring up these annoying facts.  And on and on it goes.

I'll be getting on a flight next Wednesday, and you can bet your last dollar I will not be going through Chertoff's naked body scanner.

  1. Oh, but John...you haven't lived until you have been pulled out of a crowd of about 1000 people by two guards and a ticket agent along with two Africans an Arab and a crazy French woman...trotted down a dark hallway(all the while your family thinking you are being arrested) into a room in which your bag is torn apart while you are "patted" down in front of about 10 people, then escorted to a dingy room in which a suited gov't agent questions you about your travel in detail...WHILE you are undergoing a strip search. And THEN having to argue with the FA about why you don't have a boarding pass(the goons took it) when you are finally allowed to enter the plane that was being delayed JUST for you(the offender). It was marvelous...and made me feel...I dunno...all fuzzy and warm and safe.
